Sony introduces the new HDR-CX12 Handycam digital camcorder that is the world’s first camcorder to have the Smile Shutter technology. Sony HDR-CX12 features a ClearVid CMOS image sensor that allows the HDR-CX12 to capture 1920×1080 Full HD video or 10 Megapixel still image.
With Sony’s unique Smile Shutter technology you can capture smiling photos and record video at the same time. When activated the technology will detect and automatically take a photo when your subject smiles – without having to switch to photo mode or press the photo button.
It is powered by Sony’s BIONZ imaging processor and comes with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 12x optical zoom lens and Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization. It has a 2.7-inch LCD display. The HDR-CX12 supports Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo media and any Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark2) media cards.
